There are several ways to sort your bookmarks.

  • Mozilla Bookmark Sorter is a Java program which alphabetically sorts Firefox/Mozilla Suite/Netscape bookmark files (usually called bookmarks.html). Here are the installation and usage instructions.
  • Another option is to use Sort Bookmarks, a Firefox-only extension.
  • In recent Firefox versions you can also use built-in solution:
    1. Bring up the Bookmarks Manager ("Bookmarks -> Manage Bookmarks")
    2. Highlight any file or folder in the folder you want to alphabetize
    3. Right-click the highlighted folder and select "Sort by Name".

(This procedure only alphabetizes the files in the one folder.)
